America Reckons With Racial Injustice
Over 400 Advertisers Hit Pause On Facebook, Threatening $70 Billion Juggernaut

«Facebook’s role in the Kenosha shooting — which was flagged as violating their policies hundreds of times — is a reminder that changing policies without changing enforcement means little. It reinforces the fact that lives are on the line,» the coalition says on its website.

Facebook removed accounts and pages belonging to both the shooter and a group called the Kenosha Guard, which discussed possible violence, but only after they had received much attention.

An advertising «pause» in July, led by the same coalition, involved nearly 1,100 companies. That same month, Facebook released the results of an independent audit that it had commissioned. The report faulted the company for «vexing and heartbreaking decisions,» including leaving up posts by President Trump that «clearly violated» the company’s policies on hate and violent speech and voter suppression; exempting politicians from third-party fact-checking; and being reluctant to limit misinformation about voting.
